BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – According to AAA, 15,000 teens, ages 16-19, are killed or injured in crashes each year. As such, the organization is offering a free workshop in Birmingham on Tuesday, August 27th.

Teenagers, ages 14-15, are welcome to attend the workshop, which will take place from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the AAA headquarters on Acton Road.
